# Yield Curve Construction with Treasuries

The Treasury bond yield curve can be built from several different sources:

**On the Run Treasuries:**This entails plotting the observed yields from the most recently issued Treasuries.**On the Run + Selected Off the Run Treasuries:**On the run issues may not cover the all time periods needed, particularly for longer maturities, so off the run issues may be incorporated into yield curve construction.**All Treasuries:**This is a complete picture of the yield curve, but some issues, such as those which are callable, would need to be excluded.**Treasury Coupon STRIPS**(separate trading of registered interest and principal securities): interest coupon STRIPS can be used to construct the yield curve, but this approach has the following deficiencies:**Liquidity:**Lower than liquidity of coupon paying bonds.**U.S. Taxes:**Tax treatment may be different for STRIPS.**Foreign Taxes:**Principal strips and coupon strips may be treated differently for taxation purposes in foreign countries.
